Delhi govt to introduce ‘self attestation’
Delhi government will soon introduce ‘self-attestation’ and do away with the need of filing affidavits or getting various certificates attested by gazetted officers and MLAs as part of its efforts to bring a “paradigm” shift in governance, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said on Friday.
Speaking at a CII event, he said that this move would bring relief to the general public who have to go through a tedious process of getting birth, death or marriage certificates signed by officers of gazetted rank or MLAs.
He said the step will also help in weeding out corruption and that the government would ensure “tough penalty” in case of any wrong doing like <g data-gr-id="17">wrong</g> submission of information, general particulars or tax evasion.
“We have to take all sorts of certificates like death certificate, birth certificate, marriage certificate... around 14 types certificates are to be taken from the SDM office,” he said, adding the process of getting certificate is very tedious. “We will end the process of getting them signed by gazetted officers and MLAs.”
